Spinning Top Motor With Loads Of Appeal !! — Owned my 1996 fto gpx for over a year now... and for what it costs to buy these now i find them hard to beat, great look, awesome sound (with a filter and exhaust) excellent performance (if you use the full 8000rpm) and surefooted handling.... my only major gripes are the brakes as standard arent much cop and the interior is a little bit bland as most jap cars tend to be. Overall its great and you would be daft not to pick one of these up now as pound for pound you wont find much that looks as good as these nor has the performance nor sound of that mivec v6 wailing away :) Get one now while theres still some decent ones left !!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, performance and the sound it makes

Cons: not practical, poor brakes, tip boxes can be troublesome if neglected

A Good Sport Car — this is a two door sports car,which is a stylish design of Mitsubishi.it looks like a European sport car.you can only see the Mitsubishi badge in the front bumper.came in unique colors.the one i owned was the only car which had 1.8litre engine where all the other cars were2litre.there are no more than 5cars in the country.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: style

Cons: not fuel efficient

Try It!!! — One of the best handling cars I have ever driven :-) Very light og good response. It is very surprision to have so much fun with only 180 HP but it is because of an V6 engine that takes 8250 RPM.

Pros: Handling

Cons: Not sold in Europe

Fto — I bought this car because I wanted something easy to drive to and from work but have fun with on the weekends. It did pretty much what I wanted, it was confortable on the motorway in full auto and fun to use on the lanes in tiptronic. Was put together nicely, only needing tyres and pads.....untill the gearbox gave up. In the end it would have cost too much to fix and ended up being broken up fo spares. Shame, nice car up till that.

Pros: Confortable and fun

Cons: Expensive to fix

Yay For Fto's — all around good car, wouldnt suggest it for a first car due to costs etc. but driveability is top level, braking and acceleration i cannot flaw, handling due to lines and angle of car thru downforce etc and being front wheel drive very responsive...all around great car.

Pros: everything good bout it...just look at it

Cons: currently too low, getting fixed with fully adjustable ride height
front wheel drive - both good and bad

Great Car — best car i ever drove and owned. handles brilliantly good performance. you must have yokohama tyres on the car. make sure you get a manual gpx

Pros: handles like it is on rails

Cons: limited leg room in the back

Winner Of Autotrader 2007 Best Used Sports Car; Sums It Up — Typical mitsi, everything just clips together perfectly inside, making modifying very easy. Good engine but lacks the performance to match the looks

Pros: looks, price, build quality

Cons: performance

This Car Is An Absolute Pleasure To Drive! — Driving this FTO is an absolute joy. My 1996 GPX (2000CC V6 Manual MIVEC) handles beautifully and has plenty of speed. The acceleration does not put you back in your seat - there are definately faster cars out there - but it is more than enough, and you get some extra boost at 5500 revs when the MIVEC kicks in. It is an absolutely beautiful car and turns plenty of heads.

Pros: Absolutely stunning to look at, handles great.

Cons: Not as fast as anything turbo charged, and very small back seat.
